Perfectly appointed in the much sought after Southern Quarter of Paisley, you'll find that everything that Scotland's largest town has to offer is within convenient walking distance from the development. Paisley itself is a grand and hightly tranditional Scottish town, enriched with a long history, museums, galleries, parks and fine Victorian and Edwardian architecture. It's also currently benefiting from a £50 million rennovation plan. All your immediate shopping needs can be found locally, including a Tesco Superstore, Morrisons and a Marks & Spencer. What's more, there is a fine choice of both primary and secondary schools close to hand, including the highly regarded Paisley Grammar School and St Andrews Roman Catholic Academy.
Also within easy walking distance is Hawkhead Rail Station. From here, four trains an hour at peak time can whisk you into Glasgow Central Station in as little as 17 minutes. Road connections are equally excellent, with easy access to both the M8 and M77. If you fly for business or please it's well worth remembering that Scotland's largest airport, Glasgow Airport, lies just two miles to the north of Paisley. It couldn't be more convenient.
Whether your idea of the perfect leisure activity is a major shopping expedition or action sports, you'll find the opportunity to indulge in both at the Braehead Shopping Park, just to the north of the town. Braehead has over 100 stores including Gap, Monsoon, IKEA and many more, as well as an Olympic sized ice rink. The Park is also home to Xscape, one of Scotland's most exciting leisure venues which boasts one of the longest indoor ski slopes in the UK as well as a muli-screen cinema and some fine bars and restaurants.
For quieter, more rural fun for the family, try exploring the 480 acres of picturesque views and verdant woods of nearby Glenifer Braes Country Park, which is just three miles away. From Hawkhead Village you're free to explore many historical towns and beautiful villages close by. You'll also find yourself ideally situated for getaways to the Highlands and Islands and the Trossachs National Park, as Loch Lomond itself is just 20 miles away.
With such excellent transport links to Glasgow, it's also possible to enjoy fully everything everything that one of Scotland's most dynamic and exciting cities has to offer, from high culture to unrivalled shopping and many fine bars and world class restaurants.
